Dialogue Writer & Stage Play
“The greatest things about writing this musical was the leap I had to make in terms of the range of characters. And truth been told, I knew I was in very safe hands as a writer when I understood that the production’s being put-up by Wizcraft.” – Vekeana Dhillon, Dialogue Writer and Stage Play.
“so working with the team like Wizcraft and Viraf is always challenging in a way and whole idea too is to come together and do something exciting and do something new for the audience which they haven’t seen till date. A music composer is always excited about such projects because you get a lot of new things to try out an experiment the biggest challenge would be to sink in with the live performances on stage there are close to 23 songs with the show out of which 819 are being sung life by the actor the title track was basically a one liner brief from the route of the terrestrial loud punjabi song and especially a wedding anthem of this year or the next year.” – Nikhil Koparde, Music Director.
“The whole idea of costume designing is to understand the script, character, Visualization. I think it’s just the most important part but it was very difficult, this is my first musical. In shoots, it’s very different because we can go and do their fixing and fittings at the last minute. But here it’s like a every thing has to be perfect. So yeah it was quite learning I would say to work with Viraf and it was a great experience.” – Malvika Bajaj, Costume Designer.
“It was a fun experience working on this show. Lighting has made a big different in this show. Hope it dose wonderful all around India and the world.” – Beckett Tundatil, Lighting Designer.
